The title of this podcast borrows from an old Tom T. Hall song about a cold night at a hotel in Des Moines, but I thought it fit here so I’m using it. It was 13 below in Tom’s song, so I doubt he was tough enough to go without a coat like I can.
Anyway, we obviously talked about the Iowa game and how it relates to the Michigan State game.
We also touched on what was said this week by the coaches and players.
We then spend more time on Michigan State because there is actually a very big game this weekend.
